Hop-burst your IPA. That will give big time hop flavor. It can even allow you to shorten your boil time, which will lighten the color a bit. Of course use the extract late method.
My IPA uses 2 ounces of high alpha hops at 15 minutes, and 2 ounces in the final 3-5 minutes. That gets my IBUs pretty high, so I only need to add a little bit of bittering hops for balance. It's been very well received by all who have tried it. I prefer it over most commercial IPAs that I've had.
